Question about 2002 Honda Civic

Shimmies at acceleration

When I accelerate heavily at small speeds or accelerate lightly at high speeds the motor shimmies. I think I may need new axles, but I'm not sure. Any advice on that problem would be greatly appreciated as well.

Lacks power


You listed all those things and did not say what the issue was except for the shimmy. With all the items that you have replaced, did you consider the harmonic balancer? You have changed some major wieght factors on the engine shafts. If you can now tell us what the other driveability issues are, that would be great.

Have 2005 Odyssey with same shimmy at low speed


Usually if u can drive into and out of a shimmy it is tire problems, usually balance. It can happen at diffenent speeds. The "shimmy" is the tires bouncing.

Vibration on the floor underneath gas pedal


I would venture to say your exhaust is hitting your frame, or, you may need new motor mounts. The exhaust is what I would lean toward. If you can imagine your exhaust sitting under your vehicle, and the fact that the vehicle has a little age, the motor mounts probably give a little, causing the motor to move slightly on acceleration and deceleration, thus your exhaust is going to move, and may be vibrating on whatever its touching. Good luck.

Shimmy upon acceleration


The buses I work on tend to shimmy when one or more of three things occur. 1) the alignment is off. 2) the tires are worn uneven 3) the tires have worn and now need to be balanced. The first thing I would do is take it and have a four wheel balance and check the alignment.
